01 Jan Reasons WHY Microneedling Is So Beneficial for Your Skin
You may find it hard to believe that purposely injuring your skin can reverse the signs of aging, improve the tone of your skin, and get rid of those acne scars — those unwelcome but constant reminders of a more difficult time in your life. But that’s exactly how microneedling works.
We offer many aesthetic treatments to improve the look and health of your skin. With microneedling, we use your body’s natural healing powers to fix many common skin concerns, and we want to share with you some of the benefits of this minimally invasive beauty treatment
Stimulates collagen production
Microneedling is often referred to as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient. Production of this youth-promoting protein decreases as you get older, which contributes to the development of the lines and wrinkles.
The tool we use for your microneedling creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin. These tiny tears trigger the self-healing mechanism in your skin, which includes an increase in the production of collagen.
Smooths out lines and wrinkles
By upping the production of collagen, microneedling restores your skin’s strength and elasticity, which improves firmness to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles to make them less visible.
Microneedling also takes very little time, usually an hour or less. And to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, we apply a numbing agent to your skin before we start treatment.
You may experience some redness following your session, but there’s no need for downtime — you can resume your usual activities afterward. We do, however, recommend you be diligent about the use of sunblock to protect your skin as it heals and rejuvenates.
Assists delivery of platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of the healing properties found in your blood, including platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may suggest adding PRP to your microneedling treatment to accelerate the repair process.
We create the PRP we use for your treatment from a sample of your own blood and apply it to your skin before we begin your microneedling. The tiny needle drives the healing properties from the PRP into the surface layer of your skin to maximize the beautification process.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can change the entire structure and look of your skin.
